Best dinner ever

We spent a night in Padova this month and were wondering where we can have dinner. We went to Tio Pepe ristorante and it was espectacular. Service was great and the food was amazing. It was the best food we've tried in Italy so far.

Right in the center of the city, on a beautiful little side street that would make you feel you were back in the Renaissance is Tio Pepe. Small and quaint with a staff who is truly trying to give you a memorable dinner. The menu is limited (meat or fish), but once you choose the courses just keep on coming... More

A cosy little place, within walking distance from the city centre of Padova. Very friendly service. The waiter/owner went to great lengths to overcome the language barrier, and promptly introduced me to his wife, the cook. Food was great - fresh seafood.

My girlfriend and I had reserved a table at Tio Pepe on the basis of all the very positive reviews found here on tripadvisor, and we can certainly say that we are glad that we did. As several other reviews have pointed out there is no menu at the door nor at the table but you are instead offered the... More

A tired hungry couple.... With a lovely little dog. We were welcomed in a very friendly manner... After the glass of water the meal started and wheter it was meat or fish it was well explained, well presented and delicious! Bravo! We shall go to Sardinia!

We were a group of 10 people, the owner is really nice and the atmosphere is very friendly. They served our dinner in different courses and led us to taste almost everything they had, different cheeses, breads and the main course was maialine al forno! Good ratio of quality price. Recommended for couples

My wife and I went for dinner here during our stay in Padova, I was very excited after reading many of the reviews that qualify the restaurant as excellent but we were extremely disappointed after we finished what it was a very frustrating dinner mainly due to a unimaginable poor service. I made reservations for Wednesday, July 16 at 8... More

This place is fantastic, hidden away a bit out of the centre but definitely worth the trip (no more than 10 Euros in a taxi/10-15 minute walk). It specialises in Sardinian cuisine and rather than a menu you get a choice of meat or fish - we chose fish and were treated to 6 courses of fantastic, fresh and beautifully... More

Met my boyfriend in Padova for a business trip and we decided to eat dinner here, what a treat! We walked in, they had no menu, and we spoke little italian, but they took great care of us. They gave us two options to choose from, fish or meat, we chose meat.. It was fantastic, a six course, home cooked... More
